Join local artist Andy Beck for an evening talk about Wainwrights in Colour, his book of watercolour sketches of every illustration drawn by Alfred Wainwright in his seven Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells. With a short film with Q & A.

Every single location of the illustrations has been meticulously researched so that Andy’s references are taken from the exact location where A.W. stood to take his own  black and white photographs.

As a  keen hill-walker the fells of the Lake district is one of Andy’s favourite places and being so close to hand he is able to visit the area even on short day trips. These trips have been used to gather the required photographs for the project as well as ideas for other Lake District paintings. Due to the number of illustrations, more than one route on each of the 214 fells has to be undertaken and of course the weather conditions have to be favourable to allow the scene that A.W. depicted in his sketches to be viewed by Andy.
